London police officers pressured rape victims to retract to improve statistics

The Metropolitan Police Sapphire team in Southwark, South London, had an active policy of “encouraging” victims to retract sex assault claims, allowing it to say no crime had occurred and raise its detection rates from 10 per cent to 31 per cent.
The scandal came to light after one man who the police refused to investigate for rape went on to murder his two children.
